This instructable will show you how to make a paper shaped heart, using an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper.
fold top right hand corner, so that its edge aligns with the paper
repeat previous step with left corner
your paper should look like this...
fold the paper back, at center crease
paper should have the following creases
fold at the center crease, pressing inward
fold the right hand corner upward, aligning it with the top point (creating a diamond shape)
repeat previous step with the left hand corner, completing the diamond
fold the right hand side of the paper, aligning the edge with the bottom point of the diamond
fold the left hand side
flip the paper over
flip back approx. an inch and a half (1.5") of paper
flip down the triangular section at the top, making sure it folds all the way, at the original crease
fold the bottom right hand corner, creating a triangle that aligns at the bottom center of the paper
make sure you insert the triangle from the previous step in between the slot created by the larger triangle
repeat the previous two steps with the left bottom corner
fold the top right point toward the center right, to form the top shape of the heart
insert the remaining paper inside the slot created by the larger triangle, to hold the top in place

flip the paper over, and will you look at that??? You have created a paper heart!
